Reading Wednesday | The Bridge to Belle Island

I've heard great things about Julie Klassen's books, so when the opportunity came to read her latest release, I looked forward to giving it a try. The Bridge to Belle Island is a historical mystery set in 1819 England. It reminded me a lot of the cozy mysteries I love to read, but with a more … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | The Bridge to Belle Island

Reading Wednesday | The Way of the Brave

I love wilderness survival novels. When I volunteered to read and review a copy of The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren, I didn't realize how much of a survival story it was. The further into the book I got, the more hooked I became. Getting trapped on Denali with death, the past, and … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | The Way of the Brave

Reading Wednesday | On Wings of Devotion

Ever since I learned that Philip Camden would be one of the main characters in the second book of Roseanna M. White's Codebreakers series, I couldn't wait for the book to come out. Readers first met Cam in The Number of Love as a friend of Drake Elton. He also became a co-worker of Margot … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | On Wings of Devotion

Brenna Strickland is a single mother fighting her ex for custody of her children. Nate Beckett is a smokejumper who … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Smokescreen

Reading Wednesday | Seconds to Live

Susan Sleeman is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. Her plots are always high-action and the romance happily-ever-after. So when the opportunity to be on the launch team for her latest full-length novel came up, I gladly jumped at the chance. Seconds to Live follows U.S. Marshal Taylor Mills as she attempts to keep … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Seconds to Live

Reading Wednesday | Echoes Among the Stones

I finished reading Echoes Among the Stones, Jaime Jo Wright's latest time-slip novel, last night. Putting words to a review this morning doesn't feel fair to the impact of the book. It's the type of story that leaves a reader thinking long after the final page has closed. When Aggie Dunkirk's life falls apart, she … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Echoes Among the Stones

Reading Wednesday | When Silence Sings

I'll be honest, historical novel, When Silence Sings, by Sarah Loudin Thomas, wasn't what I expected. Perhaps I should have read the back copy more clearly. However, once I was into the story, it sucked me right in. Coleman Harpe has excellent hearing. He also wants to be a preacher. The problem is, his family … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | When Silence Sings

Reading Wednesday | Deadly Deceit

Some book reviews are a challenge to write. Like this one. Because the book was so good it's hard to do it justice in a few hundred words. That's why I'm adding a new author to my favorite author list: Natalie Walters. Deadly Deceit is the second book in her Harbored Secrets series and only … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Deadly Deceit
